Our Black Sheep Dolly is what you get when four brewers from three different continents collaborate and hit the beer scene in Freiburg. It has an abv of 6.9% yet it is dangerously smooth. Amarillo and Simcoe hops give our beer an explosion of flowery and citrus aroma, backed by a spicy finish that leaves you longing for another sip.

The base malt is an even mixture of German Pilsner and American Two Row sprinkled with some Munich and hints of Vienna Malts that add to the malt complexity.

Dolly is the first craft beer from Freiburg, it is brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot with a color, aroma, and taste all its own. It is massively hopped, unabashedly bold, and uniquely refreshing making it a beer unlike the rest of the flock!

Enjoy – Cheers.

ruigo (2226) - PORTUGAL - AUG 19, 2016
33cl bottle. Hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Poor retention. Citrus, orange zest, honey and light pine in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter with orange zest notes. Dry and bitter long finish. Some arrogancy. Overall, a good beer.

McWorta (1422) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 17, 2016
Hazy, golden (EBC8), pillowy light off white head. Aromas of hay, flower-honey, caramel, lychee, orange zest, resinous, light diacetyl hovering around unfortunately and nothing to do in an IPA. Fine perlage, light slick, medium body. Fruity-caramel sweetness with fruity hop bitterness folowed by resinous bitterness on the medium lasting finish.

biir (742) - Berlin, - MAY 15, 2016
Flasche - Trübgoldene Farbe, dicker, fester Schaum. Fruchtiger Duft und Aromen, letztere werden aber schnell vom massiven Bitterhopfen überlagert. Sehr frisch. Im Abgang noch einmal Honigmelone. Gut!

MoritzF (9359) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2016
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Fruity and slightly flowery hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, orange blossoms and exotic accents, accompanied by mildly bready malt. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Balanced malty and hoppy flavours with notes of bread and loads of fruity and flowery hoppy accents; the brew has the almost perfect bitterness - sweetness ratio I´ve experienced with IPAs; balanced and lasting finish with exotic fruity spots. 07.V.16

Palme (4065) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2016
0.33l bottle from trade with bartlebier. Oh, the peachy sweetness just punches you in the nose buds. Super fruit and sweet with a massive rush of piney tropical fruits. Looks good also, with a cloudy really glowing orange colored body under a tall and lasting eggshell colored head that’s leaving lots of small dots and curtains down the sides of the glass. There’s also a little bit of summery strawberries on the nose. Like it. It has a nice and oily texture in the mouth and it’s just below average and somewhat prickling and almost creamy on the carbonation bubbles. There’s lots of bitter marmalade tones in the taste. Sweet and malty, yet really balanced by a rush of hops. Lingering piney bitterness and a little bit of hedge. A really refreshing one, very much so after the first first lawnmower session of the season. Thanks Frank! 11.05.2016
